Dr. Peter has a lot in common with his patients. He likes kayaking, rock climbing, playing outdoors, and watching soccer and basketball on TV.

What Dr. Peter does not have in common with his patients is his age: Dr. Peter Markov, a member of the National Dental Honor Society and a graduate of Case Western Reserve University, is a grownup, and his patients are children — all of them.

Dr. Peter is the founder and pediatric dentist at the brand new VK Pediatric Dentistry on Lee Highway, between Yorktown and High View Park neighborhoods. Being brand new means the office boasts the latest in dental technology, but in addition, the modern sun-filled office is intentionally designed to be comfortable and welcoming to children. It’s also fun and, of course, kid-friendly for all ages from infants to teens.

Grownups — i.e., parents — love VK Pediatric Dentistry too. VK Pediatric Dentistry offers many things they enjoy, including free covered parking, online scheduling, text and email appointment reminders, accommodation for an expanded list of insurance carriers and a location convenient from not just Arlington but most of Northern Virginia including the surrounding neighborhoods of McLean and Falls Church.

Not many parents know that pediatric dentists receive an additional two to three years of specialty training and have extensive knowledge of children’s dental health needs and growth development. Pediatric dentists receive training in advanced techniques and special dental materials as well.

Dr. Peter completed his specialty training at UPMC Children’s Hospital, a top 10 children’s hospital in the nation, and is proud to deliver top-of-the-line care for patients starting with their first baby teeth all the way up to their teen years.

“My goal is to raise a generation of kids who care about their dental health and are fearless in managing it,” he said. “With behavior guidance, nitrous oxide sedation and a staff that never stops smiling, we can usually get even the most nervous patients to have fun and accept care. We love kids and want them to have the best experience possible.”

VK Pediatric Dentistry is located at 5001 Lee Highway, Arlington. Call for an appointment at 703-962-7814 or schedule one online; for more information email [email protected].

The Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University is building on the school’s existing expertise in security studies (the Schar School is ranked No. 2 by U.S. News & World Report in this category) with a new Graduate Certificate in Strategic Trade.

Strategic trade policy implies a strategic relationship between firms, countries, and export control regimes. It includes arms control, nuclear nonproliferation, and a variety of national security issues plaguing all nation states.

“This program will help students pursue jobs in trade compliance, export controls, and dual-use trade controls in both the public and private realms,” said program director Kenneth Reinert, who also oversees the Schar School’s Master’s in International Commerce and Policy program.

“We designed the Graduate Certificate in Strategic Trade […] to position students for career success in a rapidly evolving global economy.”

Reinert founded the program along with professor Andrea Viski, founder and editor-in-chief of the Strategic Trade Review and founder and director of the Strategic Trade Research Institute.

The Graduate Certificate in Strategic Trade program is the ninth graduate certificate in the Schar School’s growing portfolio of top-ranked programs. Completion of the certificate requires five courses (15 credits), including one core course in Strategic Trade Controls, and the choice of four electives in a range of topics including nuclear nonproliferation, national security technology, illicit trade, arms control, and global trade relations.

Certificate programs are an increasingly popular credential to bolster a resume and navigate career changes and advancement. The Schar School’s certificate programs are designed to feed into the master’s degrees — certificate earners can count their five completed certificate courses towards their master’s degrees, saving time and tuition expenses.

No matter what industry you work in, technology is constantly changing. Companies are searching for candidates with new skillsets and experience with emerging technologies.

At Virginia Tech’s Northern Virginia Center, adjacent to the West Falls Church Metro station, an administrative team manages more than 700 online graduate students looking to develop new skills and fill gaps on their resume.

Virginia Tech developed its #4 nationally-ranked Master of Information Technology program (VT-MIT) in 1999 in response to a request by the Commonwealth of Virginia to help meet the growing demand for employees in the information technology field.

Since then, the 100% online program has kept pace with changes in technology, in both course delivery and course options.

Working professionals from across the country are taking the online courses at their own pace and designing a degree that works for their individual goals, whether they are a seasoned IT professional or looking to shift into a tech career.

VT-MIT currently offers 11 areas of specialization, including analytics and business intelligence, big data, cybersecurity, health information technology and software development.

The program also offers six graduate certificate options for professionals that are not looking to pursue a full degree.

VT-MIT plans to continue adding new courses and graduate certificates that keep up with current trends in tech, particularly as the wider university takes on a central role in the cybersecurity ecosystem.

Virginia Tech launched the Ballston-based Hume Center for National Security and Technology in 2010 and was tapped by the state in 2018 to lead its $25 million Commonwealth Cyber Initiative.

The university’s forthcoming Innovation Campus is expected to triple Virginia Tech’s footprint in the greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and become a magnet for leading tech talent, research and education.

For several years, Arlington-based tour operator TripUSAFrance has provided one of a kind, small-group visits to France, with company owner Julia Girard-Gervois and her father Stephane as personal tour guides.

The reviews on TripAdvisor are raves, with participants praising the authenticity of the experience, as Julia and Stephane introduce visitors to the scenery and people of their beloved and beautiful part of the world.

For a limited time, that experience enjoys a $500 discount for two of their tours booked for April 23 to May 2 and May 7 to May 16 when you add ARL500 as the coupon code.

Julia has designed tours that take visitors — a pleasant maximum of 14 — to where other tours simply cannot go; the Montpellier native has created itineraries calling on her personal insights that take clients deep into the culture of the region — which means, no tourist traps. Julia leads visitors into Medieval cities, ancient castles and chateaux, wineries, beaches and markets and introduces clients to locals who enrich the experience.

The discounted nine-day South of France tour includes stops at out-of-the-way villages, Medieval castles and vineyards that Julia knows intimately. There are many fun activities as well including a leisurely lunch and wine cruise down the famous Canal du Midi, visiting a traditional ranch in the Camargue, and a picnic catered by Julia’s mother.

The eight-day tour of Normandy takes visitors to Stephane’s home region where you discover the magic of the north. The tidal island of Mont St. Michel, the port in Honfleur, and an in-depth tour of WW2 sites with a local expert are among the highlights. You will also be treated to cheese and calvados tastings at local farms and a dinner at the horse races. It goes without saying that on both tours, the culinary experiences are assured to be spectacular.
